– Alan Hardwick, Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire
“Whilst I accept today’s decision, I must emphasise that the Court’s interpretation
of the information I received is very different to mine. My concern is that in future,any decision made by a Police and Crime Commissioner which could be considered contentious, is likely to be open to challenge in the courts. The investigation into the serious allegations is still ongoing under the direction of Sir Peter Fahy.”
Lincolnshire Police's Temporary Chief Constable Neil Rhodes has gone to the High Court to challenge the decision by the county's Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Hardwick to suspend him earlier this year.
